Glenn Hoddle will be without a staggering 12 players, plus one doubt, for Saturday's trip to Manchester United.
Mauricio Taricco, Chris Perry, Anthony Gardner have all been added to the injury list since Sunday's encounter with West Ham.
Taricco has been bothered by a groin problem for a couple of weeks, Perry is expected to be out for three weeks after suffering a deep gash above the knee, and match winner Gardner is hampered by the same thigh niggle that ruled him against Southampton.
Christian Ziege is also rated doubtful with a calf problem. Our defensive line-up has not remained the same for two consecutive games this season.
Also definitely out are Steve Carr (hamstring), Ledley King (hip), Neil Sullivan (broken thumb), Alton Thelwell (groin) and midfield quintet Darren Anderton (knee), Gus Poyet (knee), Stephen Clemence (Achilles), Steffen Freund (hamstring) and Tim Sherwood (knee).
